Group Wants To Save Historic Dodge City Theater
09/17/2013

The historic Dodge Theater, a movie and live action venue that opened in downtown Dodge City in 1929, is falling into disrepair after sitting empty for more than 10 years.
 
     But a group of Dodge City residents is determined to save the building, where the world premiere the film "Dodge City" was held in 1939. The event drew 150,000 to the city, including Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland.
 
     The group called the Dodge Theater Foundation is trying to buy and restore the theater. The Dodge City Daily Globe reports  a representative of the group, Mark Vierthaler, estimates the effort will cost $3 million. The foundation is seeking financial support from residents and businesses, as well as applying for grants.
